Software index page

The Software index page contains a comprehensive list of all software found on devices and all purchased software licenses.  If you have purchased 1000 licenses of Microsoft O365 and are only utilizing 780, you may decide to renew only a percentage of the licenses.

When you select a software, all devices using the software are revealed.  This includes details such as:

  • Total Installations
  • Tag
  • Manufacturer
  • Category
  • Version
  • Windows System Component

If you do not need to monitor a specific software, you can hide it and/or export its information via CSV, XML, and other file types.

The software index page is customizable. See List view for more information.
